When Mrs Nan Powell Hodges, an American from Seattle, Washington, USA, decided to establish the Lydon Hodges Fund, she committed to being the founding donor for annual bursaries to scholars starting out on their postgraduate research journey. Mrs Hodges continues: "I was so moved and impressed by the accomplishments of the students at a graduation ceremony I attended at the University of South Wales in July 2017, I wanted to make a contribution. Knowing how hard it is to secure funds for postgraduate study and research, I decided in consultation with USW to start an annual postgraduate bursary fund and to urge other friends to contribute." The founding gift generously given by Mrs Powell Hodges is in tribute to her late husband - eminent academic and healthcare professional Dr Robert Manley Hodges - and also in honour of the first female Vice Chancellor of the University of South Wales, Professor Julie Lydon OBE.

When can I apply for a Lydon Hodges Bursary?
A short report demonstrating the impact of the amount granted would be required no later than 12 months after the Bursary is granted. This would support raising awareness of the Fund and would be managed by the Alumni Relations and Development Office.
